Danish Design is well known all over the world and is highly respected within both the furniture, household and architectural industry. But what is Danish Design and how can that be used as inspiration when designing jewellery? What do I feel Danish Design and Jewellery from Krogholm have in common?
The style emerged in the mid-20th century when Danish designers began developing a design focusing on simplicity and functionalism. The result was beautiful products that had a very simple, classic and stylish look and at the same were very functional.
Some of my favourite designers are Hans Wegner and Arne Jacobsen who became world famous for some of their furniture designs. Unfortunately they are no longer with us but their products have become iconic and are still being produced today, they are still very much sought after and are seen as a sign of good taste and class.
My absolute favourite piece of Danish Design is the Egg-chair by Arne Jacobsen but I could fill my home with so many beautiful products.
Another Danish designer/architect that has had an influence here in Australia is Jørn Utzon being the architect of the Opera House in Sydney.
When it comes to designing my jewellery I am very much influenced by Danish Design why my style is also very classic, simple and stylish. I also find the look very functional in a way where women can obtain a very classy style with jewellery that does not scream princess but express we are standing in front of a strong individual who knows she is unique. I must stress though that I have never attempted to have my design accepted as Danish Design so I cannot label it as such. I simply let the style have a big influence on my design since it is what I grew up with.
It is jewellery you can wear with your jeans and your dress.
